|I brought these lovely 6 semps and I need a little help identifying them! I'm useless when it comes to identifying (especially when a lot of semps look the same haha) so I'd love some help!
This one has lovely deep red tips and has lots of babies (many fell of during repotting and are growing in their own container).
This one is a mix between green and red, and has little white hairs on the tips and a ton of babies which you can't really see on the pic.
This is uniform green all over, and doesn't really have any markings. It looks similar to my next two but they are different! It has quite plump leaves.
This has darker tips and small hairs around the leaves. The leaves are also flatter, and have little brownish red spots at the tips.
This one is uniform green again, but has slightly pointer tips and a boat load of babies.
And finally, this little cluster! Each one is quite small, has little cobweb hairs, and the undersides of the leaves are red.
Thank you if you can help me!

|Hi Ink, nice to meet you. Pretty semps you have there. Love the color contrast on the first one, but they are all wonderful.
Unfortunately they can't be identified for you. There are over 5 or 6 thousand named cultivars in the semp world. Once a tag is lost and you can't remember the name it is forever called a NOID (no id). Most of us have at least a few of those, but we still cherish them for the unique characteristics.
Come join us in the Sempervivum Forum. Just jump right in with your photos and conversation.

|Unfortunately there are over 7,000 cultivars of semps that are in commerce and many others sell seedlings that have no cultivar name. What you have is a nice collections of NOIDs (no IDs). Many of the members of this forum have special NOIDs that they cherish and there are some very nice things out there with no ID.
The last one pictured is clearly a cobweb type. There is some S. arachnoideum in the pedigree but there are hundreds of cobweb types too.
If you want named ones, you really need to buy from a nursery that is recommended by this group as selling cultivars that are true-to-name. They all have great web sites and some really intriguing photos to stir your buying.
